"Burning Gold" as written by Thomas Edward Percy Hull and Christina Perri....
Looking for an exit in this world of fear
I can see the path that leads away
Mama never left, and daddy needs me here
I wish the wind would carry a change
Looking through the window to a world of dreams
I can see my future slip away
Honey you won't get there if you don't believe
I wish the wind would carry a change

I've had enough
I'm standing up
I need, I need a change
I've had enough
Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

Looking for my ticket to a higher place
I can see my chance begin to fade
One step forward and two back again
I wish the wind would carry a change

I've had enough
I'm standing up
I need, I need a change
I've had enough
Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

Looking back I see I had the flame in me
I'm the wind that's carrying a change

I've had enough
Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold

I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

    General CommentThis song is about wanting to make a change in your life but there are so many obstacles and things in the way and you don't know where to begin. You have no hope. Instead you just wait for the good to come to you instead of working towards what you want. Eventually you realize that you need to make the change and you're responsible for the things that take place in you life. "You're the wind that's carrying change"
